A Tradition of Passionate Representation
For more than three decades, the attorneys with Baron & Budd have fought passionately on behalf of clients who have suffered due to faulty medical devices, implants and dangerous products. When the manufacturers fail to clearly communicate the risks of their products and people are hurt as a result, we will take the action necessary to make sure they are held accountable.
Current Cases for Medical Devices, Implants and Products
We are respresenting clients in several cases involving medical devices, implants and products, including the following:
An IVC (inferior vena cava) filter is a small metal device that looks somewhat like a spider that is inserted into either the groin or neck into the inferior vena cava, the largest vein in the body, to reduce the chances of a blood clot migrating from the legs to the lungs and creating a potentially fatal pulmonary embolism. However, in some instances a piece of the filter can break off, piercing a vital organ such as the liver, lungs, kidneys or even heart. Doctors often decide to leave the fractured part in the organ due to the dangers associated with trying to remove the filter fragments.
Zimmer Persona Knee Replacement
The Zimmer Persona knee replacement system is designed for patients who suffer debilitating knee pain due to conditions such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. It is meant to not only help alleviate pain but to also restore mobility. Nevertheless patients have reported several complications, including bone fractures, device dislocation, blood vessel and nerve tissue damage, and more.
In addition, Baron & Budd has helped clients obtain compensation after being harmed by the following types of medical devices and implants:
How Baron & Budd Can Help
There are some instances where a manufacturer will attempt to reach out to a patient who has suffered harm due to a faulty medical device or implant. Many times, the manufacturer will attempt to reach some sort of financial settlement with the patient in an effort to avoid costly litigation. If a patient agrees to a settlement offer by signing a document releasing the manufacturer from liability, he or she will not be able to pursue further compensation, and will not have any further legal recourse.
